The Convener of Guardians of Democracy, Mr Adamu Kabir, expressed the coalition’s profound gratitude and appreciation to the Justices of the Appeal Court for their unwavering commitment to safeguarding the principles of justice, equity and fairness.
“Today, we stand united to celebrate the triumph of the judiciary over the nefarious attempts by political parties to manipulate and undermine the rule of law.
“However, we, the Guardians of Democracy, stand firm in our belief in the judiciary’s ability to uphold the rule of law and deliver justice for all Nigerians,” he said.
On his part, the Convener of, Northern Christian Civil Rights Movement, Mr Tobias Ogbe, cautioned the PDP in Plateau to desist from the unholy enterprise in the interest of peace and tranquillity.
